Automatic Data Processing – Barchart’s Chart Of The Day

  • The Chart of the Day is Automatic Data Processing (NASDAQ:ADP). I found the stock by sorting the All Time High List by the best technical buy signals then used the Flipchart function to review the charts. Since the Trend Spotter signaled another buy on 10/21 the stock gained 1.86%.
